12:32 pm
just getting under way. local officials are really viewing tropical storm ana as a major annoyance. >> we just started into the busy season. this disrupts what's going on. coming down because of the rain and the wind. as far as a storm that we're really concerned about, our biggest concern is that beach erosion. >> in between feeder bands, the sun comes out, drawing people back to the beach. the storm creates potential for dangerous rip currents. despite the inconvenience, many tourists chose not to cancel their weekend plans. >> this is a girl's weekend. we do this about twice a year. and it doesn't matter what the weather is. we've come down here when it's rained out and it just doesn't matter. >> because tropical storms are uncommon in may, local emergency managers are urging residents and visitors not to let their
12:33 pm
guard down. however, everyone is cautiously optimistic that there isn't going to be any significant wind damage from this storm and they really view ana as an opportunity to prepare for hurricane season which officially begins on june 1st. we're a little early this year kelly. >> we are early, indeed. let's hope it doesn't get any worse. thank you. >> republican presidential hopefuls are gathering for the first major 2016 event in the south. the south carolina freedom summit. and there you see george pataki speaking among the top republicans that are hoping to woo voters in a conservative home to one of the presidential primaries. live from greenville south carolina carl what are we expecting there today? >> reporter: well we've been hearing jornl pataki as you said talking about the various
12:34 pm
departments that he would downsize, reduce the deficit. but there is a tremendous amount of focus here today both on national security given the threat from isis russia as well as china in terms of economics. the big discussion has really been about religious freedom. just prior to the former governor of new york, we heard from the current senator from texas, ted cruz, very aggressive in his defense of the first amendment in his argument that religious freedom should be more vocally protected. he doesn't name any other candidates but encouraging the others in the field to get tougher. listen. >> there are candidates running in 2016 even candidates in the republican seats, who when indiana was being battled, they were nowhere to be found. >> of course that's the discussion over religious freedom laws discussed, debated and passed in both indiana and arkansas while a lot of
12:35 pm
democrats were arguing a lot of liberals were arguing for marriage freedom. and he began his question about marriage equality versus religious equality and freedom. that's been a big dominant part of the discussion here. one thing that's not been happening, of course is the discussion about the national front-runner and leader in the cash former governor jeb bush is not here. prior engagement giving commencement address up in virginia. there, he too, talked about religious freedom. and in the case of mr. bush his absence here has been noted a couple of times. there have been questions about whether or not people want a new face or someone from the past. some of the candidates on the stage have made references to to time for change time to bring in new ideas. in south carolina this is a gathering of particularly conservative republicans and there's a sense that mr. bush is too moderate and part of the establishment. by going to liberty university and courting evangelicals he gets the very same bounce that many here are getting.
12:36 pm
with a long history of really giving momentum to the republican candidate who ultimately becomes the nominee. back to new york. here in greenville south carolina. >> thank you very much. swreb bush not present today because he's not considered the most conservative presidential candidate. he is doing a whole lot to connect with enk ellic icevangelical voters. why that is important for his presidential bid. new details on a deadly plane crash in atlanta. investigators say the victims were on their way to a graduation ceremony at ole miss. former sheriff's deputy two sons and their one fiance were all killed. witnesses described the scene. >> you could hear it just struggle. lowered my head a little bit because it was so close to the ground. >> it was coming right towards me maybe ten feet in front of me. >> the couple's dog was also on board. that dog also died. national transportation safety board is looking into the cause
12:37 pm
of the crash and say it could take up to a year to complete their investigation. the nfl reportedly planning to announce its suspension of new england's patriots quarterback, tom brady, next week. this comes just days after the league said its investigation revealed team employees likely deflated balls used in the championship game and brady likely knew about it. new york daily news reports nfl commissioner roger goodell has decided brady should be punished for his role in the scandal and for failing to fully cooperate with the investigation. serious charges. brady has long denied any knowledge of the altered game balls. taking bets on how long the quarterback will be suspended. over/under currently stands at 3 1/2 games only. officials conducting terror raids in australia were able to successfully foil a dangerous

12:39 pm
vo: today's the day. more and more people with type 2 diabetes are learning about long-acting levemir®. as my diabetes changed it got harder to control my blood sugar. today, i'm asking about levemir®. vo: levemir® is an injectable insulin that can give you blood sugar
12:40 pm
control for up to 24 hours. and levemir® helps lower your a1c. levemir® lasts 42 days without refrigeration. that's 50% longer than lantus® which lasts 28 days. levemir® comes in flextouch® the latest in insulin pen technology from novo nordisk. levemir® is a long-acting insulin used to control high blood sugar in adults and children with diabetes and is not recommended to treat diabetic ketoacidosis. do not use levemir® if you are allergic to any of its ingredients. the most common side effect is low blood sugar which may cause symptoms such as sweating, shakiness, confusion, and headache. severe low blood sugar can be serious and life-threatening. ask your doctor about alcohol use, operating machinery, or driving. other possible side effects include injection site reactions. tell your doctor about all medicines you take and all of your medical conditions. check your blood sugar. your insulin dose should not be changed without asking your doctor. get medical help right away if you have trouble breathing, sweating, extreme drowsiness
12:41 pm
swelling of your face, tongue, or throat, dizziness, or confusion. today's the day to ask about levemir® flextouch®. covered by most health insurance and medicare plans. welcome back to america's news headquarters. former florida governor jeb bush taking aim at president obama, as he works to gain support from christian conservatives, as carl cameron just reported, the potential republican presidential candidate accused the obama administration of using its federal power to limit religious freedom during a commencement address at liberty university. the largest christian college in the country. >> as usual, the president and administration is supporting the use of coercive federal power.
12:42 pm
what should be easy calls in favor of religious freedom have instead become an aggressive stance against it. >> political reporter for the daily beast joins us now. betsy, good to see you this afternoon. >> thanks for having me. >> i'm glad you're here to shed some perspective on what you think evangelicals will do throughout this campaign. will they cause the republicans to actually stand tall in terms of what they want? >> one thing is absolutely for sure. evangelical voters will make a difference. in iowa the majority of republican caucusgoers are evangelical christians. road to the republican nomination in 2016 evangelicals are the gate keepers. it will be very difficult for anyone to win the nomination without courting evangelical voters and leaders. one of the biggest issues where it will have influence is the marriage debate. most evangelicals oppose
12:43 pm
same-sex marriage. even though the general american electorate is increasingly comfortable with it the republican candidates are all staking out pogs against it. that's where area we could see eveng emangelical influence. >> is that a blessing or a curse? >> in the long run it will be very tricky just because america as a country is increasingly comfortable with same-sex marriage particularly young americans. a pew poll last year showed that republicans and republican-leaning voters under 30 more than 50% favored same-sex marriage. it could get republicans in a tight spot it the party decides to change its stance. when evangelical voters like a candidate, they go all in. they could be incredibly influential, as they were for george w. bush as he was running. >> how will they appeal to millennials? >> it will be interesting to see. i think one of the interesting things that jeb bush said today
12:44 pm
when he was speaking to the liberty university graduates was about christianity is a force for good not only in the united states, but globally. he is making the argument that christianity isn't just about stopping people from getting married or stopping people from getting abortions but it's actually about making a positive change in society. i think that's going to have a significant impact on young millennial evengangelical christians. that's the kind of language that tends to connect with them. >> as you know evangelical christians are very concerned about what's going on with the state of israel particularly as it relates to terrorism, and christians throughout the world. more christians are graduating from universities in israel than jews and muslims living there. what will evangelicals look for these candidates to say to them about the state of israel? >> they'll look for candidates talking about bolstering united states' support for israel both
12:45 pm
militarily and diplomatically. we're already seeing it happen when ted cruz announced his presidential bid a couple of months ago at liberty university perhaps the single bus biggest applause line was when he talked about supporting israel. governor scott walker of wisconsin is going to israel and will meet with the prime minister, benjamin netanyahu. all those send signals that republicans are looking to practice what they preach when it come ss to the u.s./israeli relationship. >> we'll see what democrats have to say about all of this as well as they continue to go forward with this entire campaign. so good of you to join us this afternoon. look forward to talking to you again. >> sure thing. thanks. >> okay. thank you. a terror plot thwarted in australia. 17-year-old accused of plotting to detonate three homemade bombs in melbourne, part of a joint, federal and state

12:47 pm
neighbors and russia's spot on the international stage? >> this wouldn't be a conventional invasion. this would be something where there's domestic unrest violence grows. perhaps it's stoked by putin and the green men or something. and then all of a sudden he claims that he has to go in to help secure his fellow ethnic russians. dave's been working on his game... and starting each day with a delicious bowl of heart healthy kellogg's raisin bran. how's your cereal? sweet! tastes like winning. how would you know what winning tastes like? invest in your heart health, with kellogg's raisin bran. no crying today...

12:51 pm
alongside pughtin the president of china, a sign of the growing relationship between the two superpowers. amy can kellogg is live from moscow with more. >> reporter: hiing inghiing, kelly, with the growth of china, russia and china make actually quite longcal partners. victory day, the victory over nazis, is the most important moment in russian history but many of the leaders of the former soviet republic who were part of the ussr and the red army back in the day didn't show up for this ceremony today nor did most western leaders, and that is, of course, because of the trouble in ukraine. now it was a real show of military might today on red square. 16,000 troops marching in precise formation fly over new tanks, all part of the $700 billion millitary upgrade.
12:52 pm
while president putin acknowledged the contribution of americans and other western allies in world war ii he did make a comment perceived to be a jab at the united states about the emergence of a, boat, unipolar world. he recently said western leaders decided not to attend this of an attempt to undermine russia. >> ideally would like everybody to come to his party like to the sochi olympics. now he's spinning it saying this shows the west is soft on facism and soft on hitler. >> reporter: the mood was patriotic and solemn. the soviet union lost upwards of 26 million people during world war ii. hundreds of thousands, possibly half a million walked through moscow carrying plaques with pictures of relatives they lost during the war. today was about thanking those veterans present today and those who lost their lives and not
12:53 pm
forgetting their sacrifices as the time marches by. now the president, the chinese president, xiaping, they sat side-by-side and spent the last day discussing a wide range of deals, a gas pipeline from china to russia, many infrastructure deals and to extend financing to russia in this this time it is really blocked from western capital due to the sanctions. can kelly? >> amy, we thank you. as you know the western world will be watching that very closely. amy kellogg from moscow thank you. many western leaders avoid moscow are for the celebration. what does this warming friendship between russia and china mean for the u.s. strategy and the rest of the world?
12:54 pm
we're joined by an expert on asian affairs. what does this mean the fact we are seeing a mix of celebrations and especially about the relationship between russia and china? what does that say? >> the relationship between those two powers is really going quite close he isespecially since 2008. and what's really important here is that the chinese are buying frontline russian equipment and the chinese extending about $25 billion in financing. so what they're doing is they're really helping putin as he invades his neighbors to the west. what we have is an axis of moscow and beijing cooperate inging closely, coordinating their actions. >> does anything bother you about that? >> of course it does. really what they're trying to do is undermine the world as it is, the liberal international system. they don't want that system. they want to change it in ways that's going to make it worse. they're both trying to redraw their borders through force and
12:55 pm
you can't have a peaceful world if you allow them to do that. >> "the wall street journal" exercises between china and russia over the past four years in asia and european waters. i also want to talk about the russian weapons that china is seek ing seeking. this is also very important if we want to put it up on the screen. in 2012 between the joint naval exercises, you have the yellow sea in 2013, the sea of japan, 2014 east china sea and 2015 the mediterranean mediterranean. what does this say to you? >> that's important but also remember in 2013 at the height of the syrian civil war we had chinese and russian naval vessels sortying together as a warning to the united states and nato not to intervene so it's not just these exercises that we saw on the screen. it's also them working together really in opposition to the rest of the international community. >> china is seeking weapons from russia. >> yes. they want the s-400 missile defense system which they're going to get. they bought about $3 billion worth of missiles and they will probably by the su-35 which is russia's best fighter and
12:56 pm
clearly that is going to make china much more powerful combination along with north korea and some of its neighbors. >> tell me what would be the need for the perfect air missile system? >> they want to prevent any sort of country coming to the rescue of tieaiwan because the s-400 can reach out about 400 killometers and that keeps the u.s. navy well beyond taiwan so this is really going to be important for them. also, it helps them with regard to japan because they want some of the japanese islands. >> all right, gordon great to have you on. thank you much. we'll be right back. severe weather in the plains states.
12:57 pm
12:58 pm
12:59 pm
1:00 pm
hello, everyone. i'm can kelly wright. welcome to a brand-new hour inside "america's headquarters." >> new action in baltimore today as the justice department announced a sweeping investigation into the city's police department. >> and the u.s. on alert forced to raise the threat level fears of possible attacks from isis and others. how concerned should we be? >> and the growing outrage after one veterans beloved american flag is defaced by a group of vandals. >> first a fox news extreme wet alert. millions of people in oklahoma and other plains states still reeling from last week's storms now bracing for what one forecaster says could be a full gamut of more severe weather
1:01 pm
today. >> last night storm chasers capturing at least two more tornadoes forming in northern texas. and this comes days after a string of storms tore across the plains producing more than 50 tornadoes that sent dozens of people to the hospital and leveled entire communities. >> it's heartbreaking. a lot of people are senior citizens but they're troupers. they're just taking it real good. everyone is thankful they're okay. >> and now more severe with weather is on the way including tornadoes, heavy rain and large hail. we've got fox team coverage for you. will carr is live on the ground in bridge creek, oklahoma. one of the hardest hit areas. first to chief meteorologist in the fox extreme weather center with what's latest heading their way today. >> so much going on. we also have snow which is hard to imagine. here we are in early may but take a look at the snow in arizona right now in may. snow in new mexicoutah this
1:02 pm
cold air will bring maybe up to two feat of snow across parts of the black hills, the panhandle of nebraska 5 to 6 inches in denver overnight and into tomorrow. that cold air eventually makes its way in through the plains and that's what's part of the driving factor for the severe weather. three different tornado watch boxes in place, eastern parts of kol colorado, western kansas. that, i think, is the area if we see large and destructive tornadoes today will be where we are also looking at the threat for more tornadoes across the red river valley and certainly an area that has seen so much weather. this is day seven of severe weather. we have it again tomorrow across much of iowa and western parts -- eastern parts of iowa and parts of texas and oklahoma again. go into monday, the same story. one of the biggest problems we're having obviously the tornadoes will be so destructive but over a foot of rain across
1:03 pm
the red river valley since wednesday and we have more rain coming now and flash flooding going on to the south of oklahoma city to the north of dallas and ft. smith, arkansas. be very careful out there and more rain coming with all of these storms. in fact, very heavy rains. some spots, julie, might see in excess of 10 inches of rain across texas and into oklahoma and flooding had will continue. all right, rick, thank you very much. >> pretty bad. folks in the badly battered city of bridge creak, oklahoma they're still in the process of picking up the pieces following this week's streng of devastating storms. will carr is there and joins us live with the very latest. will? >> reporter: the rain is picking up. i saw light fling flash in the distance. the sky is getting darker. residents here southwest are cautiously optimistic cautiously being the key word because so far these storms have held off. and this is the community that
1:04 pm
had the brunt of the damage happen just a couple of days ago. this home was hit by an ef-2 tornado. it has winds up to 135 miles per hour. you can see what's left of their living room here. you can understand exactly what this community is trying to deal with. along this part of bridge creek, pretty much every home sustained some type of damage. the home there you can see have blue tarps up trying to prevent any more flood damage on the inside of the home and then across the street this is terry warner's house. warner was inside his house. he ran out, got into the storm shelter. the tornado hit their house. it punched holes, tore the shingling off. 35 homes were destroyed. families lost everything. they lost their personal mementoes, all their food all their clothes and now they have this new set of storms coming through. they're praying that they stay away. take a listen to terry warner. >> it's hard to explain how you
1:05 pm
feel after you've been through one. you hate the thought of another one coming through. it's just mind blowing. >> reporter: and with the weather still coming through flooding is a huge issue. within the last hour or two we've gotten two flash flooding alerts from the national weather service on our cell phones asking for everyone to be very cautious all throughout central oklahoma. on wednesday we saw about 9 inches of rain come down in just a few short hours and since then we have been pounded by rain nonstop. the grounds all around here are saturated. they really can't take a whole lot more rain. the national weather service is asking for everybody in central oklahoma to simply stay home now. it's just not worth getting on the road and trying to get through any kind of floodwaters that may be out there, kelly. >> yeah it's just too dangerous. will you look at the family losing all their mementoes, the greatest thing they have, though, is each other. that's a good thing. thanks will carr. >> reporter: that's right.
1:06 pm
they're saying it's oklahoma strong. >> very much so. our prayers go out to them. thank you. all right. now to the late nest baltimore. protesters gathering for a peace rally there today near the neighborhood of the late freddie gray. the defensemenmonstrations coming day after the new attorney general loretta lynch announced a justice department investigation into the city's police department. that probe is separate by the way, from charges filed by the baltimore state's attorney ac death of freddie gray. gray of course died of a spinal injury he received in police custody sparking riots and weeks of unrest but now attorneys for those officers are saying they want the case dismissed. molly, what has been the reaction to the attorney general's announcement, first of all? >> reporter: julie, some of baltimore's leaders including democratic mayor stephanie rawlings-blake asked the if federal government to come in and investigate and the department of justice is now
1:07 pm
doing just that. but one former attorney general under president george w. bush says baltimore may get more than it bargained for if justice department investigators lower the boom. >> part of the problem is they have a tendency to come down like a ton of bricks on anybody that they look at and the cities don't have the wherewithal to challenge them in court. they don't have the resources so they wind up taking some supervisor or monitor or something that have sort and that leads to a decline in policing. >> reporter: he warns that tying the hands of the police department too much could lead to fewer arrests and more crime. julie? >> and what has been said to come out of the investigation? >> reporter: a look into the policies and practices by the civil rights division and if investigators find anything unconstitutional the justice department will seek a court enforceable agreement to address those issues.
1:08 pm
specifically lynch says the probe will focus on whether baltimore officers used excessive force, conducted unlawful searches seizures or arrest or engaged in discriminatory policing. she says it may be a process to rebuild trust between the police and community. >> the challenges that we face and that baltimore faces now did not arrive in the day and change will not come overnight. it will take time and sustained effort. the people that i met in baltimore from the protesters to the public officials to the officers including one who has been injured amidst the violence all were saying to me ultimately the same thing. i love my city and i want to make it better. >> reporter: lynch says the investigation is beginning immediately. julie? >> molly henneberg, thank you very much. president obama speaking out in a new interview about his proposed trade agreement with china dismissing critics who say it could put the american
1:09 pm
consume earp at a disadvantage. >> about 17 cases in 30 years have been brought you against the united states and we've lost zero. none. so this is not speculation on my part. it's just not something that will be realistically used to knock down things i've fought for. i'm busy out there protecting the american consumer. i would not be signing something i thought would weaken the position of the american consumer. >> meantime republicans making a pitch of their own and accusing the president of overstepping his authority. trade promotion authority binds the will of congress before the agreement is reached. if and only if he meets congress' objectives will congress then agree not necessarily to pass the agreement but only to vote on it after the american people have had their say. well some good news liberia is free of ebola. the african nation has not seen
1:10 pm
any new cases for 42 days. that's twice the maximum incubation period for the deadly disease. ebola has killed, though more than 4,700 people in that country. meanwhile new cases are still being reported in neighboring sierra leone and guinea. protesters taking to the streets in the uk after david cameron claimed an unexpected victory in the country's elections. the anti-conservative demonstrators coming up against the heavy police presence the frustrations boiling over as british leaders must now turn to a number of looming questions including whether or not the country will stay in the european union. well, the race for the white house going down south. you are looking live at a picture coming from greenville south carolina where republican presidential contenders gathered are for the freedom summit. and former secretary of state hillary clinton's hearing
1:11 pm
on the benghazi attack is expected to be postponed. republicans and democrats are pointing fingers at each other for the delay. we'll find out why. >> the fact is we have four dead americans, was it a protest or because of guys out for a walk one night who decided to kill some americans? what difference at this point does it make? all these people so asleep yet i'm so awake? did you know your brain has two systems? one helps keep you awake- the other helps you sleep. science suggests when you have insomnia, the wake system in your brain may be too strong and your neurotransmitters remain too active as you try to sleep, which could be leading to your insomnia. ohh...maybe that's what's preventing me from getting the sleep i need! talk to your doctor about ways to manage your insomnia.
1:12 pm
boy: once upon a time, there was a nice house that lived with a family. one day, it started to rain and rain. water got inside and ruined everybody's everythings.
1:13 pm
the house thought she let the family down. but the family just didn't think a flood could ever happen. the reality is floods do happen. protect what matters. call the number on your screen or visit the website to learn more.
1:14 pm
o close they can taste it.
1:15 pm
it's time now for a quick check of the headlines. number one nfl draft pick jameis winston reportedly filing a counterclaim against a woman who accuses him of raping her in 2012. his accuser is seeking damages from the quarterback who was never criminally charged because of insufficient evidence. winston is now reportedly accusing her of defamation. san francisco becoming the first u.s. city to outlaw chewing tobacco from fields including at&t stadium. the team has expressed support for the ordinance but also concern that it may be hard to break the habit. and new developments in bobby christine brown. a judge has appointed her father and aunt as co-guardians. brown was hospitalized after being found unresponsive in a bathtub in january.
1:16 pm
former secretary of state hillary clinton's congressional hearing on the benghazi attack is likely to be delayed. trey dowdy, the chairman of the special house committee, saying the panel has not been given access to the state department documents. now he previously asked her to testify the week of may 18. congressman gowdy requested two hearings but lawyers for clinton say she would testify only for one session. let's talk about it with the columnist for "the washington times." charlie, thank you very much. so you have got e-mail gate. you have unreported clinton foundation charity earnings. and now the delayed benghazi testimony that means a few hiccups in hillary's path to the white house. if hillary's testimony before the house committee is drawn out, you know, how will these unresolved answers affect her campaign? >> reporter: well i think it's a great question julie, and i
1:17 pm
don't understand what the thinking is behind the strategy by the administration and by the state department and by hillary clinton herself to stonewall on all of these things. obviously at this time she's out of the state department so she can point the finger more at the state department and the obama administration and say, well they're the ones that are stonewalling this information. i don't have any more information to provide. but whatever it is, it does put her in a very bad position because, as you rightly point out, the longer you push this investigation out towards the 2016 election the worse it is for hillary clinton. and, quite frankly, jewelulie, what it tells me as an outside observer is that wow, there must be some stuff in there that the state department and the obama administration and by extension hillary clinton doesn't want -- they don't want people to see because otherwise it is very much in their best interests to go ahead, get it out there, get this hearing out of the way, and move on to sort
1:18 pm
of not only talk about other things but getting as much time between this stuff and the election as possible. >> okay. so the committee has a call on the secretary, quote, once it is satisfied all the relevant information has been provided by both the state department and her. there has to be co-operation here. so how long should this investigation be dragged out? >> i think arguably it could go on pretty much indefinitely as long as the state department and the administration and hillary clinton refuse to provide the information that they're wanting. and i think it's also another strategy here and we saw it with that clip that you played right before the break where she says what difference at this point does it make? for her, the longer it gets dragged out, it allows her and it has been a clinton strategy forever to sort of get distance from the act that everyone is
1:19 pm
questioning about and then begin to belittle it and then begin to bemoan the fact are we still talking about this? this is so ridiculous. and try to make it seem like it was no big deal to begin with. >> let me remind everybody at home why this matters because she's not just a former secretary of state. she's running for the white house, so obviously transparency has to be her number one priority. hillary clinton has only agreed to one session of testimony before the house committee on benghazi despite the chairman of the special panel requesting two. one is he focusing on secretary clinton's use of private e-mails. then the separate session on the attack on our consulate at benghazi libya, in which four americans were killed. that is why it matters. >> and you know julie, you bring up another good point there. i'm sorry. at what point does a person who is called to testify before congress get to dictate how much they're going to talk or when that he going to talk?
1:20 pm
that takes some real over inflated guts if you ask me, to go out there and did declare, oh, well i will only am -- i'm going to make these conditions on my testifying. these are serious issues. we have a loss of lives. we lost an ambassador. this was all on hillary clinton's watch, and as you point out, she's asking for the biggest promotion there is and when you have a giant black mark like this the idea that we should get to the bottom of it no matter what because it was such a terrible thing that happened but the idea that she doesn't have questions to answer and shouldn't be made to answer them forthrightly is just crazy if you ask me. >> charlie hurt from "the washington times," thank you very much. >> thanks, julie. one thing's clear, life is not always easy. it can be filled with some very tough challenges for example the death of a loved one, divorce and disappointment in

1:32 pm
radicalism. now what they're doing, they're channelling, steering them to social websites to twitter, to facebook. they steered him to another website that's encrypted. when that happens, we to longer have the ability to easily follow them. we have a hard time determining what they're going to do and when they're going to do it. >> at that point our intelligence loses track of them until they resurface and usually that's an act of violence as we saw it taking place in garland, texas. >> it is because these websites are no longer just tutor ials. these websites are not directive. this is what you have to do just go out and it's a tragic state of affairs.

1:42 pm
for me his confessions of very bizarre. no matter how many time it happened he got more and more bizarre. i felt -- i felt like mental health issues were a huge part of the case. >> so let's bring in david schwarz, estrich ahe is a former defense attorney. you look at this case about, you know someone confessing to killing young -year-old etan patz and then a jury being basically hung because of one person. 11 people were saying guilty one person not. it shows you the power of a jury, does it night? >> the power of a jury is unbelievable. you get a different set of 12 people, a completely different result. it's all about who they find to be credible. in this particular case the one juror who stood his ground he just did not believe beyond a reasonable doubt that this man was guilty. just could not be convinced even with 11 other people talking the exact opposite and a
1:43 pm
confession. >> you know from the day that etan patz disappeared, this made national headlines. he was the first little boy to be featured on the milk carton which is thousand where we often do see missing children appear. we have amber alerts now. they have evidence except for that single confession from a man who has a mental illness. do they have a shot? >> especially in had this day and age i didn't think they had a shot. with that evidence this in this day and age, the scientific day and age, csi on tv people expect more evidence if they have a be confession with someone from mental illness it's really no evidence and i'm not surprised at all. >> here is the thing, do you go for a retrial? >> the d.a. is going for a retrial. they got 11 out of 12.
1:44 pm
new jury pool new people on the jury we can do this. there's pressure from a family give that credence they're going to go forward. >> they made that statement. everyone's cards are on the table both the prosecution and the defense. >> here's the issue here. it's not like he overnight confess ed confessed to the crime. he had been talking about the case for years since the day that etan patz disappeared. he was obsessed with this little boy. there has to be something said about the history of his obsession, does it not. everybody heard about the etan patz case. it's not like he would have had some independent way of hearing about it by personal knowledge, everybody did.
1:45 pm
the bottom line is the guy has mental illness, he confessed to the crime. >> the inconsistencies between the witness testimony and the ultimate confession. >> what about another suspect? >> coming up with another suspect is a great way to show reasonable doubt. reasonable doubt is another standard. >> cases are won and lost in jury selection. and this case really points that out. i think the prosecution did a very good job during jury selection to have eight -- to have 11 jurors on their side. i was shocked. >> was there anything wrong when the judge charged the jury. the judge's instruction can
1:46 pm
weigh heavily on a jury. >> certainly the judge's instruction can make or break. that will determine how the jurors decide the case. what the judge charges the jury if it's not correct, then it makes them think that the standard is too high. >> the retrial they'll be looking at everything on this one. >> absolutely. and the judge gave what's known as an allen charge multiple tames to try to get that jury to come to a decision. >> thank you both for coming in. >> thank you. >> good to have you. >> a desperate search is under way in greenville wisconsin, where a baby kangaroo is missing and it's a matter of life and death. >> shock, disbelief. where do they go what happens? somebody had to remove them. i would really like them back here.

now for a look beyond the headline here is the weekly commentary. >> president obama's approach to foreign policy often sounds like saying time out to an unruly child. it's a fashionable thing. mother admits losing control child gains a breather and the game to frustrate mother even more.
1:51 pm
old fashioned and might make things work. so are patchwork defense policy often called a timeout as we try to stem the tide of jihadi war in the middle east and africa. for example this week the president will meet at camp david with uneasy leaders of six gulf nations. bahrain, kuwait, oman, qatar saudi arabia, and the united arab emirates. president obama must soothe their fears about our rocky but relentless negotiations with iran. the white house sent the invitation after iran and five other world powers produced the outlines of a deal, but supposedly prevents, or at least delays the islamic republic from making nuclear weapons. you might call it a negotiated timeout. such a degree meant it would relieve u.s. economic sanctions fence tehran in e change from
1:52 pm
blocking her path toward a nuclear bomb. the president must persuade the gulf states that america will have their backs against any threat posed by the other world ayatollahs. perhaps offering commitment, but not a formal defense treaty. expect to see more military aid offered to these states, like integration of their missile system and acquisition of the snoozy f 35 fighter jet. as the u.s. military mission expands, the complexity of identifying friend or foe is dynamic. win could only imagine the number flow charts at the state department. congress sounds adamant about approving any deal with iran. so to that end the senate passed a bill that would grant congressional review of any move on sanctions. the u.s. and five other nations on the negotiating team have until the end of june to reach a final agreement. as with cuba, the president is
1:53 pm
determined to build his resume for history no matter how shaky any deal may appear. he's ready to test our old enemies. he told thomas freeman of the "new york times" that instead of fearing invasion by iran, our allies should face their internal dangers namely alienated young sunnies who need jobs and the right to speak their grievances. you can always trust the president to revert to his default position of community organizer. mind you the saudis are hinting if iran gets its way it just might fill its own nuclear arsenal. they played the great game before. a baby kangaroo is miss not guilty greenville, wisconsin. when would want to steal a baby kangaroo you ask in i have no idea. zoo keepers say it is only five months old but a baby kangaroo usually needs to spend at least one year with his mother to
1:54 pm
survive. >> they're not easy animals to take care of. it's not like a dog. you can't just put it in a kennel and put food in front of t. they need special care. >> even before that, we've never once had an issue. ever. so i just don't know. i'm baffled. >> okay. somebody please come forward if you know anything. zoo keepers also say four goats are missing. the zoo owner says she plans to set up security cameras soon. stay with us for a special mother's day tribute.
